He also snagged two man of the match performances in the lead up to the carnival and father Andrew Roderick said he is very proud.

"All of the boys put in a great effort in representing the region and battled hard the entire carnival," Roderick said

"Myself and my Wife Annette are very proud of Nathan and his achievements this season," he said.

"It was a great carnival and a wonderful experience for our South Burnett players."

Tough competition saw the squad walk away with only one win, however Roderick topped both the overall runs and wicket scores for the Wide Bay Junior representitve team.

Roderick finished the season with a total of 209 runs and now looks to continue to perform for his local Murgon club.
